Emperor Paints Masonry Paint Review - the best masonry paint available

Emperor Paints Masonry Paint Review

By Mike Gregory


As a decorator, I’ve been using masonry paint for over 20 years, but then Emperor Paints isn’t normal masonry paint, is it?


Emperor Paint use something called hydrophobic technology to repel moisture. Because of this technology, a surface painted with Emperor Masonry Paint will last approximately 25 years before it needs repainting!!


There’s more, Emperor Paint Masonry Paint is self-cleaning and even heat retaining! It does what it says too. A surface painted with this product will be around 6 degrees warmer than a surface painted with standard masonry paint!! Moreover, the painted surface will always remain breathable!




Emperor Masonry Paint is a fully water-based product available online in white (which is more like ‘brilliant white’), or a handful of contemporary colours. The tub sizes are 5L, or 10L and you can apply it via brush, roller, or airless sprayer.


Feel free to dilute Emperor Paints Masonry Paint to aid ease of use but allow 8 hours curing time in-between coats.


To achieve the longevity boasted by Emperor Paints, you should wash surfaces down with their specialist cleaner. Porous surfaces, or bare render should be sealed using Emperor Paints wall primer.


My Emperor Paints Masonry Paint Review


So, we know the technical attributes of Emperor Paints masonry paint puts it ahead of every other masonry paint on the market. Moreover, the price difference between this and standard masonry paint can be justified by the heat retaining qualities and longevity of the finish, but as a decorator, I want to talk about how this product performs from a practical and aesthetic point of view. For me, a premium price tag demands premium performance on all fronts.

I like to add a little bit of water when using this product, which makes the overall flow when applying the paint second to none. Opacity is very good. In fact, two coats of paint are all you need on any heavy colour change.


I know Emperor Paints is different to anything else on the market, but it still feels like a masonry paint. You can flood and hide minor imperfections such as hairline cracks with ease.


The best thing for me is the overall finish. You can tell this paint is a step above anything else, just by looking at the painted surface. The finish is a true flat matt, so it doesn’t highlight imperfections. There is no flashing or roller marks, everything looks even. The colour is rich and luxurious.

It baffles me how some people can be put off by the price of something, even though opting for a cheaper alternative is false economy. By going for Emperor Paints Masonry Paint, you’re not going to need to touch the paintwork again for two and half decades!! It is going to stay clean, repel water, allow a surface to breathe and retain heat!! If you understand all that and still opt for a bog-standard masonry paint on your own home, then there’s something seriously wrong. That’s without even looking at the superior finish you will achieve!
